Proprietary mineral processing technology developed by The University of Queensland, for the low-cost production of advanced materials ‘synthetic zeolites.
Leveraging novel and proprietary technology for the low-cost production of ‘synthetic zeolites’ to drive industry partnerships and deliver future production of these advanced materials.
Zeotech has partnered with the University of Queensland School of Chemical Engineering to develop and commercialise proprietary mineral processing technology that consumes kaolin or suitable mine tailings / process residues to produce high value zeolites. The technology provides opportunities to monetise broader applications of synthetic zeolites by potentially offering a more cost efficient manufacturing process than conventional methods.
The Company aspires to improve environmental outcomes by continuing to build on the potential of our zeolite mineral processing technology to be applied as a commercial remediation solution for suitable mine tailings / process residues, by utilising tail streams as feedstock and further developing a range of environmental management solutions.
The company aims to develop economically viable commercial carbon capture/conversion technologies to support Australia’s emissions reduction strategy.
Zeotech’s partnership with the University of Queensland provides the Company with a robust scientific and technical capability, which underpins continued research and new product development.
The Company is developing innovative environmental management solutions for a sustainable future – these include cleantech for lithium refinery residue tailings and economically viable carbon capture and conversion solutions.
The strategy focuses on developing innovative environmental management solutions, which include including cleantech for lithium refineries to commercially manage by-product residue and exploring economically viable carbon capture and conversion solutions, underpinned by low-cost ‘adsorbents and catalysts manufactured using Zeotech’s patent-pending technology.
Synthetic zeolites are manufactured aluminosilicate minerals with a sponge-like structure (frameworks), made up of tiny pores that make them useful as adsorbents, catalysts and ultrafine filters.
- Partnership with The University of Queensland
- Intellectual Property Portfolio, which includes: Synthesis of Adsorption Materials (PCT lodged May 2020) and Leached spodumene residue treatment (Australian Provisional Patent lodged October 2020)
- Targeting $A2.6B global market.
- Currently undertaking a dual-feed pilot plant program, which includes kaolin (offtake strategy) and lithium process residue (licencing strategy).
- Synthetic Zeolite – Zeotech aims to become Australia’s first manufacturer of synthetic zeolites and holds novel and proprietary mineral processing technologies, developed by The University of Queensland, for the manufacture (synthesizing) of synthetic zeolites. The patent-pending technologies possess the potential to significantly reduce the cost of manufacturing zeolites, compared to conventional production processes.
- Partnership with The University of Queensland – Zeotech values its close working relationship with The University of Queensland (UQ), which through UniQuest is a major shareholder with 6.44% of issued capital.
- Kaolinite is an industrial mineral belonging to the group of aluminosilicates. The term kaolin is used to describe a group of relatively common clay minerals, primarily kaolinite and is produced by the chemical weathering of aluminium silicate minerals like feldspar. It is a soft, earthy, usually white, mineral (dioctahedral phyllosilicate clay).
- Kaolin is an optimal feedstock for Zeotech’s mineral processing technology for the low-cost production of synthetic zeolites
